People often find that fat surrounding the stomach, hips, thighs, and other areas is hard to lost despite consistent diet and exercise. Orlando Plastic Surgery Associates offers liposuction as a great way to help rid your body of stubborn fat and uncover a slimmer profile. Dr. Dean Johnston serves patients in Lake Mary, Orlando, and the Orange County area and could be the answer to finally losing excess fat for you.
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery, which involves the removal of fat cells from the body. As one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the United States, it is ideal for patients that have been unsuccessful in eliminating fat through diet, exercise, and weight loss.
Liposuction is performed under general anesthesia administered through an IV, putting the patient in a sleeping state. The doctor will make an incision in a discrete place, usually to hide the scar, and will use a thin, hollow tube called a cannula to suction fat cells from the body.
Liposuction requires patients to wear a compression garment for four weeks post-surgery, or until swelling and bruising have gone away. Patients shouldn’t engage in any exercise or strenuous activities for one week. During your consultation, different recovery options will be discussed as recovery is different for each individual.
After recovery, most patients report an increase in self-esteem and a trimmer, more slim appearance. If you have worked hard to lose weight with proper diet and exercise, yet still suffer from stubborn fat that just won’t disappear, liposuction may be the right choice for you!
